I thought this game would be awesome. It was not. Once again, I am disappointed with a rental from Gamefly. Not only was this title not at the top of my GameQ, but it's not even a title I was curious about...the graphics were ok, the gameplay sketchy, and the story? Dull. Dud.

This is a great need for speed game in the series so far but for gameplay it is just about the same as the new version of Hot Pursuit just with Frostbite 3 game tech making a new paint of graphics and sound and now is open-world similar to Underground days but not as great. With all that said it is a decent release.
Graphics and sound is at 1080p and next gen quality instead of 1600x900 upscaled to 1080p like Battlefield 4. It is a great quality but we need to see what it can do, especially later releases like Dragon Age Inquisition.
Within the first 10 minutes of gameplay you'll experience:
A cutscene you cannot skip.
Narration you're forced to listen to.
Broken menus with options locked off.
Control being stolen from you several times and being forced to watch a framed in unstoppable movie.
Worthless. This is the worst in hand-holding game design. It's a racing game. With cars. The same cars we've all been driving since age 16. We know how to navigate menus.
Horrible. I LOVE racing games, but this one is not worth your precious time or frustration.
